Frame it!!!





Hello my friends, today I have a card for LIM, Chrissie and Jen have asked for a card with a frame, this one had me thinking, a full rubbish bin later :0) this is what my card looks like..

 I tried lots of different ways to make a frame I stamped and played and stamped and cursed (quietly and to myself) finally I thought, it's probably best to go for simple. So I dug out my frames!



 The little girl looks a little like me when I was cross as a child, not much different to now actually LOL Aaaaanyway she makes me smile, stamp by La Blanche, the frame is from Paper Artsy , Ink and the dog collection. The sentiment is from a set I bought from the USA and I cannot remember who it was by, sorry.


Today I've spent making furniture from that clever Swedish company, talk about stressed, a wardrobe nearly finished just to find that the inside panel was back to front! Oh my Goodness me, what a royal pain!!! I have vacated the bedroom because there were things flying LOL Much safer here talking to you LOL


Thank you so much for visiting, I really do appreciate your comments. I will do my best to get back to you, hugs Gay x

This is great, Gay. She looks like she is stamping her feet. Sounds like it suits your struggles with your furniture. I know just how you feel. I'm afraid things would have been flying here too, it's so frustrating when you finish and realise that something is wrong isn't it?
Hope you are escaping the snow today.
Hugs Lisax

Oh!Gay this is fabulous, what a great image and the sentiment says it all, just wonderful.

It reminds me of the time I said "bl..dy" and my mother in her sweet way said "Faith please don't swear!" so I did it again and again while stamping my feet, how old was I? about 30!!!!!!!
